Addictive Rating: 3
Synopsis: A woman who can see ghosts finds comfort in a rich guy who is emotion-less most of the time. He is the only person to help her make the ghosts disappear just by touching him. He has a tragic back story that the drama develops over time. The main female character goes through a lot of changes throughout the drama and builds her confidence throughout it, which I liked.
What I have to say:
Initially it feels kind of like M. Night Shyamalan's The Sixth Sense as we watch Gong-Sil, a woman in her 30s see ghosts. She developed this ability after a terrible accident that nearly killed her. Randomly she runs into Joong-Won who provides refuge from the ghosts and is this very needy character. I liked the special effects of the ghosts and I liked the "mysteries" they solve together due to her sixth sense. It was easy to watch and addictive because of that. Eventually their relationship gets tricky as they develop feelings for each other, which I found to be rather predictable and perhaps even a bit boring, but it was still fun to watch them fall in love because who doesn't love a good love story? Overall, one of the best dramas I've seen. I'd put it in my top 10 for sure.

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
